|concerted effort at leading Julie to the spot where Martha's body was eventually found. Julie recalls thinking how "senseless" and "ridiculous" it was that John wanted me to go over to, across Walsh Lane onto his property and look for her. And it didn't make sense." John Moxley says he was most definitely not out there looking for Martha with Julie. Getting to the bottom of this conflict - even though, on the surface, it might seem like a trivial detail is crucial to ruling out, conclusively, that John could have had anything at all to do with his sister's murder.
As to his own suspicions regarding the investigation, John Moxley is openly skeptical about the Skakel family. He recalls that there were a lot of lawyers, or "handlers", on the Skakel premises immediately following the discovery of Martha's body, and he questions the motives surrounding the hunting trip to Windham. It is his feeling that the Skakel family has been less than absolutely forthright and cooperative with respect to the Greenwich Police investigation.
John also remains suspicious of Ken Littleton. Over the last eighteen years, it seems like there's a couple of groups of people, the Skakels and Ken Littleton, that have never been able to prove conclusively they weren't involved."
To that end, John has been in contact with Littleton through Littleton's attorney. Somewhat improbably, he claims that Littleton's attorney once said to him, "What happens if he breaks down and admits to this?" John reportedly responded, "We will take it from there." John also advised that the police could not believe it was said.
From a memo regarding John Moxley's September 7, 1994 interview with a Sutton Associates representative: John Moxley stated that in his view, Littleton is a very, very troubled individual. He believes that Littleton, at one time, had a sexual identity problem and that this belief was based on conversations he has had with several of Littleton's friends. He also volunteered that some of Littleton's friends thought that he may have been gay. John further volunteered that he thought that Littleton may have been using steroids, although this is only a feeling on his part and he has nothing to support his belief.
It was at this point in the interview that John stated that, in his own mind, he made a connection between the manner in which Martha's body was found, with her jeans and underwear rolled down and the buttocks exposed, and Littleton's possible sexual problems. He believed that the body found in this position may have been as a result of Littleton "trying to fuck her in the ass."
Suffice it to say, the words chosen by John Moxley to convey this scenario struck our investigator as being offensively incongruent with the way one would expect a brother to speak of their deceased little sister. Perhaps, in the grand scheme of things, this amounts to very little. Nonetheless, it serves to illustrate, once again, that John Moxley has left a small but lingering doubt to his own credibility in this investigation. However, if John Moxley is telling the truth regarding this alleged meeting with Julie Skakel, we must find out who was with her that night, and why she is in some state of denial regarding that person's identity.
